Dark Rising

A couple days late, but here’s to the fading of the light.

(What an ethereally melancholic Hades. The ears of wheat make me think he’s pining for Persephone.)

    Too blonde, skinny and ethereal for my taste. I always think of Hades as dark-haired, swarthy and menacing. Love the portrayal of the horses though. Blessings of the Autumn Equinox to you! Although Hades should be happy at this time of year — Persephone will be back soon!

    Reminiscent of some paintings of Christ (some pietas). Definitely a Christ-like quality to him, although the crown of thorns normally depicted is here a crown of laurel leaves (which usually signify victory, triumph).

      I <3 pietas. And a very good comparison if you draw an Osiris-Christ-Hades-general Underworld rulers. Even if Hades isn't a resurrecting god, for artistic purposes you can stretch the mythology a little :)
